AT&T drops tiered voice plans for new customers

0. phoneArena 11 Oct 2013, 21:19 posted on

AT&T has dropped tiered voice plans for new customers, requiring those signing up for service today to have unlimited talk and text; this means that those who would have signed up for a lower priced plan with capped minutes are now forced to pay a higher price for unlimited talk time even if it is not something that the customer wants or needs. On the other, those with a family plan won't see any changes at all...

Its not better though when you go up from the 300mb. I just switched from mobile share to individual while I still could as the 3gb data for 30.00 is cheaper for me then mobile share plus I get a discount off my voice. 450minutes 39.99 (for me 30.00) will rollover&nights weekends + 3gb data 30.00 unlimited messaging with any mobile calling 20.00 . Plus with free voice calling now on ios google hangouts all the better!. Mobile share is 95.00 with only 2 gigs instead of the 3 you can get on the individual plan even with my voice discount of 25 percent off the 50.00 part of the 95.00. No matter the case its bit more per month on mobile share for one line when you move up from the 300 mb. And want more data then the 1gb .

They are trying to push clever ways to increase revenue. This is all out of fear of becoming a "dumb pipe", as voip apps begin to become the norm and voice minutes become irrelevant.

In the past, nothing was stopping anyone from singing up with the lowest tier voice plan, just a few gigs of data, using WIFI, voip, facetime/skype,, and calling it a day. Until now.....

I wonder how they will handle VoLTE when that is implemented.
